ad aware... how long to download on dial up?

  mermaid25 11:22 29 May 2005

went to, but after I click to says on the actual site 'downloading in progress' and there is a arrow moving down.

should there be any other indication... or is that it?

left it downloading while I had breakfast ..but when I came back the arrow was still moving, but still the same webpage showing.. that's after about 15 -20 minutes.
Am I just being impatient?

According to click here it should take about 7 minutes. However if you have a slow connection and/or the server is busy ...

If you rummage through your PCA cover disks, presumming you buy the mag, you'll find adaware on a lot of them, then all you have to download is the updates.

You could try downloading it from a different location. Here's the link for MajorGeeks click here

HTH, dagwoood.
